Quality Residential Cleaning Services What residential cleaning services is the best option? The first consideration should be what sort of residential cleaning services company are you happy to deal with? A large national company may have a good reputation but you are likely to pay a premium rate for their maid services as the company has substantial overhead costs to consider. This does not strictly mean they will provide better residential cleaning services to their clients though. At the opposite end of the scale are the one-man-band maid services, most of these people are typically recommended by friends and family and a constant stream of work coming their way and seldom have time to take on more work, so what is the solution? As with most forms of business there is a third option, the halfway house option if you like, a compromise between the premium prices and the over- worked individual. This type of business tends to focus on specific areas of the country, such as individual towns or cities like Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver etc. where they can manage their resources better to provide the best possible home cleaning services at a much lower cost to the client. This type of home cleaning services business, as with the 'nationals' are likely to be able to have adequate insurance cover so if anything goes wrong in your home, the repair costs will be covered. An aspect of the service most individual maid services do not provide. What do I need to know about a home cleaning services business? Once you have narrowed your potential home cleaning services business you should consider the next stage, interviewing each business to assess their working practices, experience and suitability to meet your standards. Some question you should be asking are... Does the business have references from other clients? Is the insurance policy adequate? Is the company employees offered adequate protection in line with labor codes, local and national insurance codes? How many people are employed by the company and how many are full- time employees? What equipment and cleaning agents are used by the maid services company? You may have further question but the above examples should be the starting point of the interview. If satisfied with the answers you can then discuss the costs, making sure all costs are provide before a contract is agreed, any business will demonstrate complete transparency when it comes to costs so do not feel intimidated when discussing the financial aspects. Remember, you are the boss in this relationship and you want the best residential cleaning services for you.
